From Xiamen to Singapore: Processes and Experiences of Migration

From mid-nineteenth century to the beginning of WWII, tens of thousands of Fujianese left China through the port of Xiamen and headed to the British colony of Singapore. This talk describes the mechanisms and processes of migration that tied the two seaports inextricably together. Using oral history, it also recounts the experience of those who travelled during this period, which were significantly different from that presented in popular novels and television dramas.

This talk is part of the “Culture to Bind the Immigrants”: Allaying Discontents and Integrating New Chinese Immigrants in Singapore research project funded by SCCC.
